* {{Hermaphrodite}}: In a deleted scene, a scientist explains that the aliens have both male and female reproductive organs, being able to impregnate and become pregnant themselves. Whether this is still canon is unknown, but it leads to some interesting FridgeLogic. And, of course, [[FetishFuel the corresponding fanfic]].

** The police brutality perpetrated by the [[PsychoForHire MNU soldiers]], [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:DurbanSign1989.jpg the "No Non-Human Loitering" signs]], and even the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/District_Six title of the film itself]] are all [[TheApartheidEra decidedly unsubtle]], with [[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped chilling effect]].

* {{Badass}}: The Nigerian gang boss, who, among other things, calmly and nonchalantly stares straight down the ''flaming'' barrel of an alien gun that just blasted one of his men ''through the wall of the building'', while it's being trained on him from ''six inches away''.

** Analogies have also been drawn with Zimbabweans seeking refuge from the Robert Mugabe regime.
** The racist interviewees in the beginning of the film were real people asked to give their opinions on recent Nigerian refugees.
* FantasticSlur: The aliens are referred to as prawns for the entirety of the film. We never learn what their race is actually called.

** During [[spoiler: the attack on MNU HQ]], you can see [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=snfc_wNWqSU Tetra Vaal]] Biosafety on the wall. Also, the [[spoiler:MiniMecha]] looks a lot like the robot from ''Tetra Vaal'' (also by Neill Blomkamp), and "Tetra Vaal" signs can clearly be seen inside MNU headquarters. It was subsequently remade as the full-length film Film/{{Chappie}}.

* AlternateHistory: The aliens landed in 1982. Technology, on the other hand, hasn't changed, due to MNU solely focusing on attempting to capitalize on alien weaponry.

* AlternateHistory: The aliens landed in 1982. Technology, on the other hand, hasn't changed, due to the alien's technology being completely inoperable by humans, and denying any attempt at reverse-engineering. In addition, MNU solely focusing focused on attempting to capitalize on alien weaponry.weaponry, instead of more peaceful tech.
